I thought I‘d try and read the novels that form the basis of the Universal movie Monsters. I read Frankenstein as any true sci-fi/horror fan should. However I found it an interesting but joyless read. Dr Jeckyll was altogether different. I got swept away in the glorious language & salacious innuendo. Must have been a blast to read this by the fire with a large brandy in the 1800s. Contemplating Dracula‘s next: As a kid I remember it being boring.
